I Got Spammed From This Forum

Recommended Posts

I just checked my email and it was loaded with spam from someone called snowlee who sent the spam from this forum. This isn't the first time this has happened. It just irks the crap out of me when people take advantage of this fourm for their own gains. I know the moderators are quick to delete the offending posts here but by that time the emails have already been sent. I guess I'll have to reconfigure my email notifications setting. Has anyone else encountered this situation?

The forum user's name is snowlee. He or she is listed in the members list. It is my opinion that this person should be permanently banned from this fourm. The emails had to do with some supposed online store. Here is a copy of one of many I recieved. ritchie58,

 

snowlee has just posted a reply to a topic that you have subscribed to titled "2 Million Pcs In The U.s. Infected With Botnet Malware".

Dave, if you and I got them than it's a good bet other users were targeted as well. Also I just noticed that this character is listed as the newest member in the Board Statistics as of this writing.

Glad to hear that Orlando. Personally I would have banned him/her for life but that's up to you guys. (If he does it again I hope you would consider it.) I have set my email to private so I hope that takes care of the problem of people spamming me. I would encourage other members to set their email to private as well least you get spammed too.

agree with ritchie58 ... ban for good because he/she registered just for spam or fun ... I don't see any post bad or not of this person.

I think that was a wise decision. It sets a good example to other would be spammers that if you exploit this forum it will NOT be tolerated and your banned for life. Adios snowlee!
